Follow our simple recipe to make a perfect pancake every time this pancake day – we will leave the topping choice up to you!
100g plain flour
2 large eggs
Pinch of salt
A little sunflower oil or butter for cooking
1.Put the flour, eggs, milk and a pinch of salt into a bowl or large jug, then whisk to a smooth batter. Set aside for 15 - 30 mins to rest if you have time, or start cooking straight away.
2.Set a frying pan or crêpe pan over a medium heat and carefully wipe it with some oiled kitchen paper or grease with a knob of butter. Heat until very hot and add a ladleful of batter so it evenly and thinly coats the base of the pan. Cook your pancakes for 1 min on each side until golden, turning them over using a spatula, or flip them if you are feeling brave! You can keep them warm in a low oven until they are all ready.
3.Serve with a squeeze of lemon and sugar, jam, syrup, chocolate spread or whatever your favourite topping is!
4. If you wish once cold, you can layer the pancakes, then wrap in cling film and freeze for up to 2 months.
